What is a glycolic acid peel?
A glycolic acid peel is a light chemical peel it is typically performed by anesthetician or a nurse. While weak acids such as glycolic can be applied in multiple layers to achieve more significant results usually this peel results in some minor flaking and redness which is usually healed in one to 2 days. These type peels are useful for improving skin texture and tone over time with repeated applications. We recommend PCA Light Chemical peels as these can be tailored for the specific patient’s needs with a combination of many beneficial acids for the face.
